We have another positively delightful wedding from our dear friend Aaron Delesie to share and this one is honest-to-goodness magic. Not that we expected any less from a vendor list that reads like a who’s who among fabulous wedding warriors. Beth Helmstetter lent her keen eye for design to create a day that is movie star glamorous and paired ever so nicely with floral art from Flower Wild which has literally taken our breath away with its sheer magnitude of gorgeous. And you know how we feel about Aaron Delesie’s photographs. Beautiful doesn’t even begin to describe them. All in all, this is the stuff that wedding dreams are made of. See the full day right here.
From Beth Helmstetter…
Talia and Aaron are one of those couples that everyone truly wishes they were…they are so vibrant, hip and madly in love! And, while Talia definitely had a few other preferences for her day, the biggest directive she gave me for the day was she wanted it to be fun! And, despite being in a uber sophisticated ballroom, she wanted to make sure that the day didn’t feel overly formal and stuffy nor did she want anything to feel too kitschy and out of place.
We started out by bringing on one of the best bands in Southern California to ensure the fun quotient was high. This paired with great food and quirky details such as cute silhouettes and a cake covered in sprinkles made sure that guests saw the couple’s personality in every part of the day.
Now, there obviously was a sophisticated and chic side of Talia too which was brought into the day with luxurious linens made of satin ribbons interwoven to make the most stunning pattern. Hundreds of teardrop lanterns hung over the custom dance floor and Kate from Flower Wild completed the day adding her effortless style with garden flowers in just the right shades to remind guests we were very near wine country. It was posh, luxurious and a million other adjectives, but overall, the day was very much like the couple…fun!
